    Hey Gents and Ladies,

    After searching forever for what I want to with my
    life (even though im only 21) i kind of think im going
    to fully focus on a career in IT. Im currenty trying
    to work out whether I want to self study an a+
    course or invest in one of the many course providers
    around. Hoping you guys can help in my decision to
    be honest... I probably just need a kick up the asre.

    Anyway glad to be here

    Sean

    Greetings :biggrin

    The A+ is certianly the place to start for people looking to lay the foundations,for a career in IT.

    As for self study Vs Training Provider,thats just down to personal choice.

    I will say this though.I am currently with a training provider,whilst i have no gripes against them,what im basically doing is self study on my own from home,(i've just paid more cash for the privalige).

    Yes i have some tutor support there if needed,but with great forums like this one around all the help is here if needed(and for free) :biggrin

    Grab yourself the Mike Meyers book,an old PC or two to get some hands on with and away you go.

    Focus on one Cert at a time,and most of all have fun while you learn. :biggrin

    Got to go with the above!

    I'll just add though that with a training provider you 'may' be given deadlines to meet. This means that if you want to get what you've paid for then you may just get that kick up the a$$ you've been looking for.

    It all depends on weather or not you are able to motivate yourself to work.

    Oh, Welcome BTW! :biggrin
